Dr. Fredric Mau joins me today to discuss working with anxiety and trauma. He shares where we can start to build systems, protocols, and foundations to help our clients and highlights the evidence-based approach to hypnosis as well as specific research and updates to hypnosis terminology. Fredric reveals how hypnosis works on the limbic system and shares the metaphors he uses to drive emotional framing for success. He also shares why all hypnotherapists should be working with clients on pain relief.
